How do I get my eBooks to appear on my iOS device? (pre-download/post-purchase)

In order to access eBooks from Booksamillion.com, you'll need to first download and install the BAM Reader 2 app to your iOS device (iPad, iPod, or iPhone).

The BAM Reader 2 app is free, and can be downloaded from iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bam-reader-2/id528826437?ls=1&mt=8

Upon your initial launch of BAM Reader 2, you will be asked to authorize the app. To do so, enter your BAM ID and password Ð the same e-mail and password that you use when you place an order on the Books-A-Million website.

[NOTE: If you've previously downloaded eBooks from Booksamillion.com, the BAM Reader 2 app may ask you to merge your existing Adobe ID with your new BAM ID; doing so will ensure that you can transfer your existing library to your BAM Reader 2.]

After this is finished, enter the ÔPurchases' section of the BAM Reader 2, found in a tab on the bottom of the screen. After you log in with your Books-A-Million account info (be sure to use all lowercase characters when entering your e-mail address), click the arrow beside your eBook purchase to download the title to the BAM Reader 2 program.

File Sharing & Backing up purchases

Thank you for your email to booksamillion.com Customer Support.

You may transfer your eBooks to and from BAM Reader 2 through the Apple iTunes File Sharing feature. This is also a convenient way to back up your eBooks.

If another app supports the "Open In..." feature of iOS, tap and hold on a PDF or EPUB file name to access the "Open In..." menu. Choose the app that you'd like to copy the file to complete the process.

It's worthwhile to note that, once an eBook is opened in BAM Reader 2, it will automatically be added to your BAM Reader eBook Library.

NOTE: Remember to back up books you purchase, download, or transfer to BAM Reader using the Apple iTunes File Sharing feature. If the back-up process is overlooked, your library items could be lost.

Can I purchase eBooks using the BAM Reader?

Unfortunately, due to factors beyond Books-A-Million's control, eBook purchases cannot be made using the BAM Reader 2; you'll need to access www.booksamillion.com via your web browser, and use our online bookstore instead.
